Located in Edinburgh’s city centre is the Crowne Plaza Edinburgh – Royal Terrace with stunning views towards the Firth of Forth. The hotel is part of an impressive terrace of prestigious Georgian townhouses with many of the original features. We have recently undergone a renovation. Each space at the Royal Terrace has been sympathetically designed to achieve a fine balance of modernity and tradition. A Celtic thread weaves through the interiors, with subtle indigenous design motifs informing the design narrative. Thistles motifs and highland wall linings provide cultured Hibernian undertones to the lounge bar. The restaurant provides a refined contemporary setting drawing inspirations from Edinburgh’s royal botanical gardens, sunflower walls and an alfresco feel provide a light, bright atmosphere which compliments the darker, amber tones of the adjacent lounge, lobby and bar. Our rooms are warm and contemporary creating a relaxing space for your Edinburgh stay.

Neighbourhood
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.

This is really convenient for access to the heart of Edinburgh. Especially convenient if you want to visit the theatre. As there is no Hotel Parking you can park outside the hotel and if you arrive after 5.30 and leave before 8 am it’s free. The Hotel staff are excellent,

Beautiful afternoon tea! I’m vegetarian and they went to the extra effort of giving me a totally separate plate of food. Unlimited tea or coffee. The food itself was delicious and such a good selection. We were so full couldn’t even eat it all! The waitress was lovely and

This hotel is perfect for exploring Edinburgh. It is about a 15 minute walk from the centre, but a pleasant one at that. It is situated along a terrace in a quiet street set up on a hill. The staff are very friendly, especially Scott the concierge. He was very helpful and gave

Right behind it is a hike to the top of the hill with a great view plus a tower that was closed when I was there. Otherwise not really close unless you like to walk.

The pool is no longer open, well it wasn’t when we were there last week. Annoyingly/confusingly it was shown on the confirmation email.
